This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
This is another Long Form
improv format. The name is based on a novel by Arthur Schnitzler, called Traumnovelle, in which a series of characters sequentially
bed each other, from first to last back to first.
The format is fairly simple: we play scenes in which at every scene switch,
the `oldest` character disappears and a new scene is played with the remaining
character, and a new one. The form ends when the circle closes and the last
and first characters do a scene. Obviously, there is no need for all characters
to bed each other!
Switching scenes is done by tagging out (like in Freeze Tag ). The
is to see different aspects of a character, in different situations,
interacting with different characters.
For a long discussion about the format see Chicago Improv .
